A very Merry CHRISTmas Eve from beautiful Winter Wonderland, Redman. It is so beautiful and peaceful outside and to tell you the truth this feels like a reward for making it through the painful, stressful lame duck season of our country.
Macon County Patriots has seen a lot this past year, been a part of some pretty incredible events and has grown into the northern Missouri representation of the Tea Party & Patriot movement. It's been an honor to represent Macon County Patriots throughout this year. I know it seems we've been quiet since after the elections, but we've been doing some reorganizing and getting our footing to dig into the new year of activism ahead of us. The past couple of years have been our boot camp. Now it's time to get involved in our government and be a part of running to the roar of the battles ahead of us.
[W]hen male lions get old, their teeth start to get rotten and they aren't able to kill animals very easily. In order to get fed, they recruit the lady lions and stronger young guys to help them. When they get ready to hunt, these effective killers go hide on one side of a herd while the big, old lion goes to the other side of it. Once he’s in position, he'll let out this massive, scary roar that sends the herd running away from him where the stronger lions are waiting. And, thus, they run to their death.
Scripture says that our enemy is like a roaring lion. When we look at it from this point of view, it gets really interesting. If we really think about it, as the ultimate deceiver, [Progressive/Liberal Government] is like an old, roaring lion who has bad teeth and a big roar. All he can do is lie to us, just like this old lion. If we would, instead of running from him, face the roar and run in the direction of what we fear, we wouldn't be devoured. Instead, we would likely experience God’s deliverance and find that there is nothing to fear after all.
The truth is that Jesus threw Satan down already. And through His victory, we are also victorious. Like I said, all our enemy can do is lie to us and send us running in the wrong direction—away from where God wants to take us and where He can show us His strength and truth.

“Be on the alert! Your adversary is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.” 1Peter 5:8
Over the past 2 years I have never felt doomed, scared to death or defeated. Disappointed, surprised, angry maybe, but not like it's the end. Never before, since the 1st Revolution, has there been such an awakening and uprising of the American people. And I believe with all my heart that the United States of America is at her very best when she's fighting for her freedom. And I'm honored to serve in any capacity to be a part of this 2nd Revolution.
We have reorganized within Macon County Patriots. I have moved into the Treasurer's position and our new President is Rick Cochran, from LaPlata. Aaron Baker remains as Secretary. I will be no less involved in Macon County Patriots and I look forward to serving shoulder to shoulder with Rick as I am hoping all of you will also. Now more than ever it's time to be active.
–noun 1.an especially active, vigorous advocate of a cause.–adjective 2. of or pertaining to activism or activists: an activist organization for environmental concern. 3. advocating or opposing a cause or issue vigorously, esp. a political cause.
Our membership has not stopped growing, which means more and more people are still awakening to the urgency of getting involved. We, in northern Missouri, have become a vital part of turning this government around and handing it back to We The People both on the state and federal level. It's an honor to serve with every single one of you and I look forward to the upcoming 2 years.
God bless and protect you and your families,
My prayer for Macon County Patriots
As a reminder of Who's we are as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ:
Dear Fellow Macon County Patriots,
I am extremely humbled and honored to have been entrusted to serve as President of MCP for 2011. I would like to take this opportunity to share an overview of my vision for our group for 2011 and beyond.
I have a simple philosophy and motivation for my involvement with MCP. Here it is in a nutshell: America is in deep trouble for one reason; we have strayed from our founding principles. As such, the only way she can be restored is to return to those principles. I believe that groups of concerned citizens like MCP can be instrumental in helping this to happen. Therefore, this belief will guide everything I endeavor to do with and through MCP.
This is a Christmas message and I do hope that what I have said about America being in deep trouble has not put a damper on the spirit of the season for you. But if so, remember this; the gift Christ came to bring us was freedom as Galatians 5:1 says, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” As such we can be sure that He will be in the fight with us and, even more importantly, that He has already won the victory. I look forward to facing the challenges of the coming year with each and all of you in the strength of the One whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.
May you have a Merry Christmas and a happy and free New Year.
